There is the mirage of needing constant technological advancement driven by the phantom of the artificial stimulus of credit (not from capital/savings) but this is a characteristic of materialism. Absent the disease of materialism the infinite advancement of the human potential (acquisition of virtues, for example) is equally or even more valued than mere technological advancement.
Having a counterfeit culture within a counterfeit society nourished by counterfeit money that props up counterfeit education and counterfeit news supporting a counterfeit rendition of history results in a perspective that is not much different from ideological materialism.
